This clearly shows, from my interpretation of the season, that we are a truly good side getting better. If we have received the most goals from frees in the fwd50, and we have consistently lost out on poor decisions against us in the fwd50 to the distinct advantage of other teams, particularly 'big' teams, then: OVERCOMING THE PRIOR MISSED GOALS AND KICKING ONE OF THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF GOALS IN THE COMPETITION, WE ARE GOING VERY WELL. IT IS A MATTER OF HOW MANY GOALS THE UMPIRES AWARD TO OUR OPPONENTS IN ANY GAME THAT DETERMINES  THE SEASON RANKING. DOMINANCE HAS TO BE COUNTERED, OVERCOME, EVENED AND BRUSHED ASIDE.

One thing that annoys me about that stat is, when we take a mark and there is some interference they pay a free (to us) and  it is recorded as a free. Goal from a free when we had the mark anyway! Makes the figures look good for the umps.

Well if we have kicked the most goals SURELY channel 7 would love us on a Friday night. With all the goal breaks the advertising guru's would spend more. Open your eyes 7 and AFL and make it happen.

True, but they are more likely to get the AFL to change the rules to ensure 'big' teams can kick more goals.

Just noticed we have scored 1561 points (average 104 = 17.3 goals) with the next nearest Richmond 1461 (average 97 = 16.1 goals) after the last round. Simple really. Goals = breaks = $$$$ in revenue. Carlton 942 points (average 62.8 = 10.4 goals) and St Kilda 1055 points (average 70.3 = 11.7 goals).   Hmmmm channel 7 missing the plot here.

Classic, tidy up the backline, who knows what might happen? Decent fullback, CHBack able to adjust this year, another tall mobile.

This is the long-term worry that has besieged us for so long and now it is so terribly evident as a form of manipulated earnings.

If we could only get maximum return from our inside 50s and not squander them as against Geelong, GC, St K, PA and Freo we would not need to add much to our backline and we would have three more wins.

Dare to dream.

This makes me mad. We get bent over week after week with dubious decisions by the umpiring. Yet here Woosha get up and has a crack. Where is Goodwin or other leaders at the club protesting about the run we get with them. Stand for something! Bloody annoying. 

I'm the opposite. To me it smacks of Woosha having a whinge and blaming the umps publicly for why they are losing to deflect from them having a terrible year. I would hate Goody coming out and complaining about the umpires. gives the players an out.

To a normal onlooker, in a normal, not coercionable, sincere  competition that would be correct, but.........

Today's game confirmed for me what I thought has been happening for a while.

On 2 separate occasions a player was lining up for a shot on goal and a voice came over the umpires earpiece saying '15 seconds', the umpire would then tell the kicker that 15 seconds had gone.

Umpires are taking directions from a 3rd party. Who is that, and why?

Umps were terrible today. Terrible.  One sided towards the dogs.   Dees should ask for some explanations. Salem’s roll tackles given push in the back when it copied so many of the dogs tackles.  Ridiculous.

And they overlooked so many blatant throws, and also many incorrect disposals.

And don't start me on that prima donna Chamberpot - he just cant resist making it all about him!

Multiple times Dogs ran too far with it, invaded the "protected" zone, threw it like it was water polo, and Hogan and McDonald T were not playing on footballers, they were playing on Greco-Roman wrestlers.


Business as usual for the umps.

Harmes handball in a tackle dribbles into the point post. Deliberate!!! Goal to dogs

johanussen runs it through the goals under no pressure with only a demon being 10 metres away. Point. 

Unbelievably bad umpiring

Listening to Dangerfield on stage at yesterday’s Business of Sport luncheon and he was openly critical of some of the umpiring this year particularly prior opportunity calling it farcicle how quickly they are blowing the whistle against the guy trying to play the ball.

What's he got to complain about? He gets kissed on the dick down Kardinia Park.
